Sicily restaurants

Sicilian cuisine is bolder, spicier, and sweeter than the food in other parts of Italy. The focus is on seafood, notably swordfish. A popular dish is pasta con le sarde (pasta with sardines, fennel, peppers, capers, and pine nuts). For dessert, try cassata, a chilled ricotta-and-marzipan cake, or dolci di mandorle—almond cakes and pastries. This region's cannoli—pastry tubes filled with creamy sweetened ricotta—are also excellent. Note: Many restaurants in Palermo are closed on Mondays.
